Terrell Owens: new team, same number

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - For Bills fans filling out their programs: Yes, folks, T.O. will be No. 81.

The Buffalo Bills said Thursday that newly signed receiver Terrell Owens will be getting his familiar number, and that second-year receiver James Hardy will be switching to No. 84.

Hardy, the team's second-round draft pick out of Indiana last year, wore No. 81 during his rookie season.

It's unclear whether Hardy will be compensated by Owens to switch numbers.

In the past, veteran players joining new teams have been known to pay for or provide compensation for the right to switch numbers.

The Alexander City, Ala., native has worn No. 81 throughout his NFL career, but wore No. 80 in college at Tennessee-Chattanooga.
